Berlin Rebel High School / Berlin Rebel High School

Germany’s most unusual high school has no headmaster, no hierarchy and no pressure. This Berlin based school is entirely organized by its students without any outside funding. The adult pupils pay their own teachers and decide what they want to learn.
We follow three students who come from different state schools all over Germany and have one thing in common: they failed. Now they experience a completely new way of learning – and want to give it a try again. They have two years to prepare for the final official test, held by the government.
BERLIN REBEL HIGH SCHOOL is a film about the true meaning of learning, a tribute to curiosity, to the joy of life and to change.
